The Area

Aboyne is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore Deeside as it is within driving or bus route distance to both the coast – where you could visit the breath-taking ruins of Donotter Castle near Stonehaven, watch seals whilst enjoying a pint in Catterline or try dune surfing on the beaches North of Aberdeen! – or the Grampians where if you are lucky, you mights try Scottish skiing or spot one of our most precious and revered birds – The Golden Eagle!

There really is something for everyone-whether you enjoy a quiet stroll around one of our local castles, art galleries or distilleries or if you fancy something more strenuous-kayaking or even swimming in one of the local lochs or rivers, mountain biking or horse riding in Glen Tanar, a hike up the Lynn of Dee or Lochnagar and of course fishing…….It is all possible!
